How do I start a business on Amazon?
Starting as a seller on Amazon is easier than you think. To start selling on Amazon, you simply have to carry out the following steps one by one:
  • First, set your selling plan based on the number of products you think you'll be selling per month. We offer two selling plans: Individual and Professional. We even have a simple fee calculator for selling on Amazon to help you understand how much you can earn from each selling plan for a specific number of products sold.
  • Next, you need to complete the registration process. To do this, you'll need your Amazon customer account information or a work email address and your (or your company's) credit card details. You will also need a valid identity document (e.g. a passport copy or an identity card). If you run a business, you'll also need your company registration details, including your VAT number and phone number, and bank account information.
  • Once your registration is complete, you will be granted access to your Seller Central account from where you can manage your business.
  • Next, you can offer your products by listing and uploading a product ID, SKU, product title, product description, product images and search terms, as well as relevant keywords and the costs for each product on Amazon.
  • Now you need to choose the right shipping option to deliver your products to your customers.
  • Now you're ready to sell your products on Amazon.

How long does it take for Amazon to pay its sellers?
Amazon will disburse your account balance 14 days after you register your seller account. This means that Amazon will make a payment to your bank account on your disbursement date. The disbursement process repeats every 14 days.
How much does it cost to sell a product on Amazon?
The referral fees you pay depend on your selling plan and the type of products you sell.

Selling plan chargesThese are the fees you pay for your selling plan, and they vary depending on which plan you have selected.
If you choose the Professional selling plan, you'll be charged a flat fee of €33 per month, not a per-item fee (meaning you'll only pay €33 per month, regardless of how many items you've sold).
If you choose the Individual selling plan, you pay a fee of €0.99 for each item you sell on Amazon.

Referral fees
These fees are charged per item sold and include brokerage fees (which are a percentage of the selling price and vary by product category) and variable closing fees (which apply only to media categories).

Fulfilment fees
When you fulfil orders yourself, Amazon shipping rates apply. We calculate these shipping rates based on the product category and shipping service selected by the buyer

Fulfilment by Amazon
Products that Amazon fulfils for you (known as Fulfilment by Amazon or FBA) are subject to order fulfilment, storage, and optional services fees.
